Snarky Candiru2

Sunday, 4 October 2009

Given that Canadian Thanksgiving is next Monday, I should think that we'd probably see a lot of Pattersnarfing that Americans might not understand today.

Perhaps next week; right now, we, as aprilp_katje said, have to watch John be gobsmacked at the results of his blank-witted refusal to supervise Mike and Lizzie. Also, he wins the Numbskull Of The Week award for leaving something potentially harmful in the reach of children.

Panel 1: We start off with Beer-gut John in his jammies shaving his face with a cordless razor. the 'funny' sound effect used is "Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z!!!"

Panel 2: As he continues, he doesn't know that he's attracted Mike's attention.

Panel 3: He rubs his chin, still oblivious to his audience.

Panel 4: The next part is where things get stupid; that's because it looks to me (and this is JUST me) as if John forgot to turn the razor off when he went to get dressed for the day. In any event, he and Elly never made their lecture about respecting other people's possessions stick because they're stoopid and useless.

Panel 5: Fortunately for all concerned, the blade guards on the shaving heads prevent Mike from hurting himself when he pretends to shave; unfortunately, the noise attracts Lizzie's attention.

Panel 6: Mike imitates his father by not only rubbing his chin but by carelessly placing the razor where someone could get to it: the toilet seat.

Panel 7: Lizzie, wearing those damned pink overalls that have to be a bitch to take off when she needs changing, smiles as she picks it up.

Panel 8: She uses it to give Farley a reverse Mohawk.....

Panel 9: ....shaves a small strip of carpet.....

Panel 10: ....and gives herself a bit of a trim.

Panel 11: Mike notices the razor on the floor and probably wonders how it got there.

Panel 12: He then 'fixes' things by putting it back where John had it.

Panel 13: A fully-dressed John is confused by the fact that not only is his razor clogged, its battery is almost ran down.

Summary: All this could have been avoided if he had either turned it off (like I said, I don't think he's smart enough to turn the thing off), taken it with him or otherwise kept his children from playing with a destructive "toy", also, he's given Elly something legitimate to scream about.
